The film's stories have a mysterious, collective power that's undeniable.
The idea remains more absorbing than the final product.
A humorous, humanistic approach enlivens an inventive documentary feature about people living around Rome's ring road
Taken on its own merits, Sacro GRA suffers from a structural slackness, as though Rosi's expansive manoeuvre was a bridge too far for the filmmaker.
No matter what Rosi puts on screen in this film, it's always beautifully framed and shot with an eye for color.
It's a small film with big ideas, and certainly the most interesting documentary about a highway you're likely ever to see.
A fun and insightful slice of Roman life. Next up, M25: The Movie?
Sacro GRA is the sort of beautifully observed, leisurely paced verité documentary that gets made all too rarely now.
Those who like to discover a film for themselves will find this a rewarding, reflective experience.
A rough and ready, unsanctioned tour of the Eternal City's fraying seams.
While it may prove frustratingly mundane for some, thanks to its intrinsic humanness Sacro GRA has a quiet power despite its crumbling aesthetic.
Rosi seeks out the forgotten folk who the commuters leave behind: an eccentric bunch that includes prostitutes, paramedics and parasitic weevils.
The fact that these different individuals have only an enormous ring road in common seems like an arbitrary link between them to create a broad portrait (yet in very broad strokes) of Italian society, and it feels detached as it observes but doesn't bring us close to these people.
